Chris Carter’s Other Secret Movie

Chris Carter’s <i>Other</i> Secret Movie

You may recall several months ago when we at The Moviefile reported on the upcoming X-Files film and noted that writer/director Chris Carter was keeping plot details from the film so tight that crew members were only allowed to read the script in a video-monitored room. Now Carter seems to be delving even deeper into life as a secret squirrel: he's keeping the fact that he's directing a new film entirely under wraps. The Hollywood Reporter broke the story today that Carter is already halfway through directing Fencewalker, a dark drama starring Natalie Dormer, Katie Cassidy (David Cassidy's daughter!) and Xzibit. The film, currently shooting in L.A., is rumored to be a coming-of-age, semi-autobiographical (the longest word I've typed in five years) character piece. THR also points out that the film has no supernatural elements, unless you count the director's paranoia. What it is he has to be paranoid about, I'm not sure.

Super 8: Going Off the Rails in Spielberg Territory

<i>Super 8</i>: Going Off the Rails in Spielberg Territory

Steven Spielberg's name is featured so prominently in all the trailers and poster for Super 8, you'd be forgiven for thinking that The Bearded One himself directed this summer season's latest would-be blockbuster. That feeling only intensifies in the movie's first few moments, which sets us down in a small Spielbergian town circa 1979 to the strains of a dreamy John Williams-ish score (actually composed by the always-stellar Michael Giacchino). But then the first of many lens flares strikes the camera and you remember, "Oh right! This is a J.J. Abrams joint!"
